This timely overview and synthesis of recent work in both artificial neural networks and neurobiology seeks to examine neurobiological data from a network perspective and to encourage neuroscientists to participate in constructing the next generation of neural networks. Individual chapters were commissioned from selected authors to bridge the gap between present neural network models and the needs of neurophysiologists who are trying to use these models as part of their research on how the brain works.Daniel Gardner is Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at Cornell University Medical College.Contents: Introduction: Toward Neural Neural Networks, Daniel Gardner.
